Description

This will be your go-to favourite for years to come.

This button down shirt style has been worn by youth since 1910, the button collar was designed to stop polo shirt collars from flapping around riders faces.  It was exported to the US and was most famed from the 1940s onwards particularly on the Eastern Seaboard amongst Ivy League students who have worn them since. 

But SJC isn't going to do do any old button down shirt, you know that.

The style here is Inspired by an original early 1950s American shirt (most consider the early '50s to be the peak of this smart style), and has all the hallmarks of the era; set back button on sleeve, locker loop, correct 4 hole MOP buttons, centre back neck button, chevron pocket, and it comes delivered to your door in a beautiful slubby cotton jersey, like the original polo shirts.  So it stretches, like a polo shirt, and is fuzzy and warm on the inside. 

More could not be added to this beautiful shirt. A style we think hasn't been bettered. 

Size and Fit

The shirts come in full sizes only, so if you are in-between sizes 15, 16, 17, we suggest you size down as they stretch comfortably to fit.

Model is 6'2" and wears a size 15.5. See the size guide button on the right ➤
